Indy Parks finally celebrates the community opening celebration and the ribbon ceremony of its freshly renovated Sandorf Park located on the southeast side of Indianapolis. As of Tuesday, November 10, 2020, children finally have access to their newly enhanced playground and its many new features. Indy Parks said the park had to go through a comprehensive redesign to make it a fun and engaging play space for children and their families. Like Mayor Joe Hogsett emphasized, “these young people are the future of Indianapolis. They work hard, and they deserve a state-of-the-art recreational facility.”
Sandorf Park is home to a few firsts for Indianapolis such as the city’s first bike siphon track and first encased ‘multi-sport’ court where guests can play basketball, futsal, pickle ball, or volleyball.
Sandorf Park provides a remarkable recreational experience to anyone that visits the park. The recreation center incorporates a blend of fun new attractions such as: a multi-sport court, a melodic tactile spinner, a Junior NBA basketball court, a triple danger siphon track for skating and riding bicycles, a wellness challenge course with gym equipment, an outdoor adventure space implementing a strolling path, and a jungle gym zone with eight walkways, manufactured turf, and rubber treated safety surfaces.
It also includes a picnic area with outdoor tables and charcoal barbecues conveniently located beside the park’s most attractive features; the playground arena and artificial turf play hills covered in artificial grass by SYNLawn®. Toward the east end, a multipurpose field designed to replicate a full-sized soccer field.
These many unique features prove that Sandorf Park is a valuable resource for the local area. It provides our community’s children with a safe place to get some fresh air, have fun, and enjoy their youthful energy.
SYNLawn® was contracted for this project for the installation of the artificial grass hills and playground turf. Enhanced safety features were also installed by SYNLawn® including 2″ of recycled content foam beneath the playground turf.
The type of artificial grass that was used was the highly rated SYNAugustine X47. This product utilizes exclusive SYNLawn® Super Yarn technology that combines three turf technologies into a single grass yarn. Those three SYNLawn® exclusive technologies include Sanitized® Antimicrobial, DualChill IR reflective technology, and StatBlock™ antistatic technology. Super Yarn® is the cleanest and safest artificial grass ever made.
In addition, SYNLawn® offers a vast collection of synthetic turf products from artificial lawns, pet turf, and playground turf to putting greens, living walls, and safety surfaces. SYNLawn® artificial turf provides long-term resilience and the most realistic look and feel compared to competing brands.
Majority of our products use a plant based Enviroloc™ backing system made from renewable soybeans to replace 60% of petroleum from the backing. Enviroloc™ locks-in the turf fibers to prevent shedding and enhances the long-term durability of the turf. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, SYNLawn® offers Progienics®, a brilliant antiviral solution that is applied to the artificial grass installations and available for purchase.
